Abstract (en)

Provided is a vehicular interior panel that enhances the feel of touch of a product terminal portion while ensuring design features. A base material 22 is provided with an inward flange portion 26 where a terminal portion of the base material 22 protrudes toward the inside of a vehicle, while a covering material 16 is provided with a folded terminal portion 16a where a terminal portion of the covering material 16 is folded toward the outside of the vehicle while catching the terminal portion 22a of the base material 22 including the inward flange portion 26, wherein a gap 28 is provided between the terminal 26a of the inward flange portion 26 and the covering portion 16. Accordingly, a cushion material 18 can be preferably prevented from being crushed by the folded terminal portion 16a of the covering material 16, and a soft feel of touch of the product terminal portion can be ensured. In addition, development of a problem such as a forming failure due to a strength decrease or a plate thickness difference can be suppressed.
